Not yet exceptional. When the exceptional rating is reached this is highlighted
For the times I pressure myself..
"Competition" by Pen & Paper
Sometimes I contradict myself
Like I don't even know myself
Being an influencer motivating others
Glad and grateful that some get the courage to get out of their bed and work for themselves
But does not really feel great when someone else does better in your field if it's not you
You were there before them..right?
Can't believe myself when I feel competition is everywhere
In everything I do
I feel suffocated like I really need a chill pill
A pill that says there's no hurry you are where you should be
Everyone has their own fight
Different people different story
I'm practicing meditation
I am reciting these lines over and over
So that one day comes,
Where I don't feel the need to tell this to myself
I already know it.
There's no competition it's my own journey.
And a beautiful one.

Author Notes
Do let me know if you relate to this feeling..
Pays one point and 2 member cents.
